Glens Falls, NY: The Adirondack Mountain Club, 1977. Ninth edition. Illustrations in text, large folding map in pocket at rear. Original yellow glazed wrappers. Map with a few pale stains, owner's name in ink on title, wrappers lightly soiled. Item #400589
The map is the fifth printing, and the original to this edition. This ninth edition provided descriptions of several new trails, notably Sage's Folly and the Harold Weston Trail, as well as the rerouted Cascade Mountain Trail, the rerouted Van Hoevenberg Trail to Marcy Dam from Adirondack Loj and the new approach to Elk Lake-Marcy Trail. Alterations in the Calamity Brook Trail also necessitated revisions, as did the construction of a new parking lot at the southern end of the Ausable Club in Keene Valley. This also contains the first description of the removal of the Santanoni description to the section on Peaks Without Maintained Trails. A paragraph was added on climbing Whiteface Mountain from the Atmospheric Science Research Building at Wilmington.
